I don't know why. I don't know what for. I'm probably the guy who shouldn't be allowed one.

How come I can't do this all the time?
Did this at a little over seven yards, left handed. The drill we were doing simulated getting shot and losing the use of one arm, and having to clear a stoppage before being able to use it again. Since you will likely have no use of the affected limb, the gun is retrieved from the ground. Since an spent cartridge is in the chamber, when the gun is sighted in, it goes "click" when one attempts to use it. The stoppage must be cleared, one handed (using the belt as a place to push the gun against to cycle the action is my favorite), reloaded, and fired at the target. Apparently, I was concentrating quite intently on the clearing, so I just brought the gun up in my left, hand, sight alignment, sight picture, trigger squeeze, follow through...and a center punch hit. I gotta work on doing that more often. Maybe I just need to shoot with my non-dominant hand with everything I fire. Who's got a 416?
Who is this guy, and who let him have a blog? They gotta police these things better. Hmmmm...what about me, then? Here's a few tidbits:
I'm a Christian.
I work for ATS Tactical Gear in Oak Grove KY as a multi-manager.
I got my BS (so very appropriate) in Business Management in Dec. of 2007.
I'm a shooter, gun collector, knife kook, and pretty much find anything that shoots, goes bang, or explodes pretty interesting. I'm especially fond of full auto weapons with supressors, which are legal in KY. Yes, I realize that quiet firearms and the love of BANG! makes a contradiction, but that's how it is.
I'm an NRA supporter in general and a supporter of the 2nd Amendment in particular. The Constitution is second only to the Bible in importance.
I'm a Conservative that more often than not holds his nose and votes Republican.
I like loud stuff. Movies, music, cannons...whatever ya got.
I like comments on my Blog. Comment as much as you like! Unless you really offend me (and I get the last word, so that's not easy to do), I'll publish them all. I'll also have the last word. ;) That holds true unless the post is Anonymous. Most of them don't make it. Own your words.
